Daily observations of Enterococcus spp.concentrations in a coastal waterway were similar during and outside perigean spring tides.• Tidal inundation of stormwater networks occurred daily, but rainfall runoff produced the greatest bacterial contamination in the waterway.• High Enterococcus spp.concentrations were observed in roadway floodwaters and the receiving waterway during perigean spring tides.
